The Week of Accompanied Prayer offers a rare opportunity to be affirmed in prayer and experience new or different ways of praying. A handbook is available which provides guidance for those organising a week of accompanied prayer, those who will accompany and those taking part (all in the ethos of Llysfasi). This can be adapted to other contexts.

The Week brings the retreat experience to the people, where they live, so that they may have the experience of being accompanied in prayer whilst continuing the routine of everyday life. Pilgrims agree to spend half-an-hour in prayer each day and meet with a prayer companion each day for up to half-an-hour at the venue chosen for the week. It also provides full practical details of the preparation and ongoing organisation advisable for the success of the week.

A Week of Accompanied Prayer: Handbook for Co-ordinators is available at a cost of £7.50 (including post and packing). Half the cost of the Handbook is put aside for bursaries for the Llysfasi Workshop. Please contact Michael Waterfield at 3 Bridge View, Pimperne, Blandford Forum, Dorset DT11 8TX. E-mail waterfield@waitrose.com. Payment by cheque please, made out to ‘Helpers of the Holy Souls’.
